hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
george bush. senior advisor to reagan, you've been around for a long time, okay. and you've got a book here, out in paperback now called keeping the republic, saving america by trusting americans. so what do you mean by that? do i have to trust all americans? because my understanding is there are about 47% who are parasites. (cheers and applause) can we trust each other? >> yeah, sure. and you know, i think the point, stephen, is that democracy really only works if people are allowed to make their own decisions. and i think a lot of folks with perfectly good intentions believe that you or i maybe we're just victims, you know, and we need them to page decision for us. we might pick the wrong mortgage or the wrong credit card or the wrong health care. we might pick the wrong light bulb, you know. >> stephen: uh-huh. >> so you know-- . >> stephen: we might buy paint that has lead in it. we might drive cars that have lead in it. we might live next to a nuclear power plant that has these burdensome regulations on it, all of these dangerous things that make us victims. >> yeah, well, you kno
1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the reco
not done that that much over the last couple of decades. >> he noted examples of george to be bush, -- george w. bush, he won. >> it is not necessarily at the presidential level. indiana, the senate candidate richard murdock look like he was slightly ahead of democrat joe donelly going into the final debate between the two men last monday. in that debate, murdoch made some comments about rape that were taken -- able to be used in the democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated political coverage for the last couple of days. it has sunk his poll lead. donnelly lead in the race according to internal polls. >> will take you live for to the get out the vote event. >> the future of our country right there. this looks like from the-ryan compan -- romney-ryan country. this is how i look at it. six more days to avoid four more years. you agree with me? i will go along with that. we need him now. it is the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. the momentum is our way and you can see from this crash -- this crowd. are we going to take mitt over the goal line? of
of president george w. bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days or weeks of the election, in 2000 there were reports of a dui arrest that he had in connecticut a couple decades before. in both cases, they didn't move many boats. the october surprise can completely alter a presidential contest, but italy has not done that that much. host: you noted the examples of george w. bush. we know as it is that an october surprise release ways voters. guest: last-minute things can sway voters. i cited examples in that article. not necessarily in the presidential race but let us look the other races right now. in india, the senate candidate murdoch looked like he was slightly above joe donnelly going into the final debate between the men last monday. in that debate he made some comments about rates that were taken -- vitter able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated the states. the political space for the last couple days. and it has sunk mourdocks place. what we saw there was a real moment in which a last second declaration by a candid
grown tired of what their country was come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised to change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a firefight, they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror justice has been done. >> some argue obama has not met expectations in the mideast. he faced persistent trouble with a come dominant region in iran. still he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral. part of what he calls a broader shift. >> after a decade in which we fought two wars that cost us dearly, the united states is turning to the vast potential of the asia pacific region. >> obama turned his attention at home to pushing through health care reform, something president after president had tried to do. he succeeded with what became known as obama care, the most significant overhaul since medicare and medicaid in the 1960s. he pushed to shore up b
something like this, and actual disaster. what was learned from katrina is that george w. bush got a lot of phones down for doing a flyover and for not going into louisiana. for acting like he could look at it from a distance. all politicians have learned from his mistakes. uc barack obama cancelling his campaign, going to new jersey, and meeting with chris christie, a republican. most people in the u.s. he has done a good job. he was talking with the army corps as engineers. in that regard, it has helped, getting all the face time on the television when you don't see much of mitt romney. >> it has been striking, hasn't it, to see him with the governor and listening to the two of them congratulate and thank each other in this campaign we have seen such bitter politics. to see a democrat and republican coming together like this. >> that is supposed to be the best of america, when there is a kind of bipartisan effort in a time of disaster. you see it exemplified by obama and christie today. this election is in a dead heat. polls give obama a slight edge. some of the other states are close.
from history, the rules clearly dictate that in the event of a tie our next president will be george w. bush. (cheers and applause) we miss you, sir. we miss you. but at this point, either candidate still has a shot as long as they can win over one key demographic. >> president obama and governor romney faced off. many polls showing them running neck in neck, making the remaining undecided voters more important than ever. >> the undecided voters. the voters in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if. (laughter) folks, folks, here's how it stands. the electoral kitchen is closing in two weeks and they still can't decide if they want the black-and-white cookie or the decaf wheat thin. (laughter) they're elusive! but we know that they're out there! these campaigns have spent billions of dollars trying to capture them with lawn signs, t.v.
to the emergency. that is what the mayor was referring to. we saw george bush saying he stayed away from the area around katrina because of that reason and bush suffered terribly for that decision but governor christie has welcomed president obama today so no one complaining about that in new jersey. >>neil: in new jersey. the rest of the state...i don't know, if obama was offering help, i would take it. thank you, byron. the president is in atlantic city with governor chris christie and he should be speaking shortly, fema officials are there and other top officials. rick, what do you see there? rick: incredible devastation in this community and many more up and down the new jersey coastline this is one of hundreds of homes that was damaged, some of them destroyed. you can see in this guy's front door and see the pool table covered with several feet of ground. >>neil: i will come back do you, but, now, with the president. >> we are surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline, we want to show the president that personally, and i had an opportunity to see and discuss it at length, and
it to a cabinet-level agency. it got better. george w. bush demoted in to some sub agency within homeland security and look what happens to new orleans. we are seeing before our very eyes a stark difference between mitt romney saying we should privatize everything including fema and barack obama working with even republican governors like chris christie on a federal relief effort. that's a huge talisman for what you believe the proper role of government is in society and i believe this will show that the president's right and people look at this in ohio and swing states. >> not the only very stark difference between the two of them. the latest obviously being sandy and bringing the attention on romney and fema. he was asked yesterday multiple times what he would do with fema. did not answer. but just a short time ago jeb bush commented on local officials responding to disasters versus national or federal response. i'll play that but i want to play something else first. romney on the campaign trail today trying to transition, rachel, from holding off or holding fires to acknowledging the ongoing ev
know, george w. bush asked president his flyover of katrina got people very, very angry. in many ways, it hurt the republican party in 2008 along with the war in iraq and the economic crisis of '08, it was sort of the third horseman of the woes that w brought on the country that he didn't seem to care enough during the time of the katrina disaster. >> jennifer: you wrote about this in the great deluge. you wrote after katrina the gulf south region and the united states as a whole needed compassion. what it got instead was the incompetence of george w. bush who acted as though he were disinterested in a natural disaster in which there was no enemy to be found. bush's slow responses to the great deluge made americans ask if he was a bunker commander in chief. and many people would argue that he never recovered from that. would you agree? >> i agree and i was in new orleans when katrina hit. and i was flabbergasted. i mean he went on from crawford, texas to san diego and gave a speech about the navy and about
counties in the nation to vote for george bush in 2004 and then switch to barack obama in 2008. brown county was one of them. but then it swung back to republican scott walker for governor in 2010. the question is what next? st. norbert college political scientist wendy scattergood says that even in a deeply divided electorate, the wisconsin tradition of tough-minded independent voters is alive and well. >> they tend to be moderates. they do want to see bi- partisanship. they want to see people working together. and so when they get really frustrated or if their perception is that either on the right of the left that they're moving too far to the extreme, they throw them out of office. but having done that only two years ago it wouldn't surprise you that this state could flip again? yeah, absolutely. we have a tradition of being very, very closely matched between democrats and republicans, so those independents can make all the difference. >> you can canvass, phone, input data, whatever you want. >> reporter: how many persuadables are there? that's also being pursued by some major no
states of america much like they attacked george bush with katrina. bush made the same phone calls that the president is making now except to the governor of louisiana and the mayor of new orleans, all turned down his help. and the rest is history. but they are trying to play politics with all of this and global warming, they are trying to blame somehow in the future to elect him these things won't happen. all the while they forget their president barack obama cut fema. megyn: the folks who are opposing governor romney in this race are talking about he wants to abolish fema. he wants to get rid of fema because of an answer he gave during a debate to john king of cnn talking about how we need to make cuts in certain programs and talked about our debt. that's my own characterization of it. he's right. fema is kinds of a catchall. a lot of times it's under turned. knowing they will have to get more money to in fact fund it. when they do that all these happy members of congress are glad to put every pork barrel project in the world into it they couldn't get vote on in a regular lay in
it is -- it was very clear with george bush, he undervalued fema, to put it under homeland security, put brownie, great job brownie who was a horse guy, political appointee in this, this has been professionalized, pulled up, fema runs well because you have a president that believes in it. >> okay. >> jim? >> are you telling me that barack obama made -- before barack obama, fema sucked is that what you're telling me? >> i'm telling you. >> no, that's what you're saying. >> they cut the budget for it and president bush undervalued this operation and showed mitt romney -- i'm talking about mitt romney now saying he would not get rid -- >> have you watched the clips? >> you were there, you were up in new hampshire when it was happening. >> i was watching it. >> i watched the clip, peter, he didn't say that. >> he didn't say what i just read? >> the whole discussion was about downsizing government. he never said we should cut fema. he should we should take funds and -- >> you want to ask chris christie about that? >> sure. give him a call. >> look. >> come on, peter. >> my point on this, jim -- >> what is
of propriety such as any exists stilin a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this ben
of president george w. bush bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days, last couple of weeks of the election. in 2000, there were reports of a dui arrest that bush had in connecticut a couple decades before the. in both of those cases, they didn't really move many votes. southern ocean of the october surprise is something that can completely alter a presidential contest really hasn't done that that much. >> host: right. we both noted example that george w. bush. he won. do we have evidence that an october surprise really swayed -- sways voters to? >> guest: eyesight a couple of examples in that article. it's not necessarily the presidential level but let's take a look at some of the races farther down about happening around the country right now. in indiana, the senate candidate richard mourdock looked like he was slightly ahead of democrats joe donnelly going into the final debate between the two men. in that debate, mourdock made some comments about rape that were taken, well, that were able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have d
this state twice. in 2,000 it went to george w. bush. but in two thour four it went to john carry. the president got a nine point victory in 2008. so we are a toss up state. the polls go back and forth forth. >>> it's difficult to determine who is going to win this state. host: how do residents vote on election day? guest: there is not early voting but tr is absentee ballots which have you to sign a form saying you're not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally polls are open from 7:00 to 7:00, some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other stratist cal facts are that we are one of the least tax states in the nation, the least stack state actually. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two governor candidates are running on that issue as a matter of fact. host: and talk about the recount laws that are in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that t
president george w. bush. thank you so much for coming on the program. you know, we realized today once you have food and water, the next thing everybody is worried about is energy, whether it is the power in your home or fuel in cars. i mean that's what we really need to rebuild and fix everything that is going on. let's start with energy here in the northeast. i mean when do you think people will get power back? how hard is that? >> well, melissa, right now, we've got about 8 million people without power. although all of the utilities have extra crews in, you know, frankly, they're going to be people without power for the next seven to 10 days. melissa: yeah, it always takes longer than you think. when you're one of those people without power and saying will it be back in a few hours, the answer is always no. what is the toll on businesses and economies? you see businesses in the affected area have no power. so they can't pay their bills. they can't do whatever their business is. i mean it's a big problem. >> it is a big problem. we've heard economists are all over the place. we heard any
administrations. during the years of bill clinton, 23 million private- sector jobs were created. george bush's numbers in comparison were quite paltry. again on ben ghazi, i said before that i am not privileged to some of the information that i am sure our president and military leaders have right now i would put money on the fact that our last caller is not as well. i trust wholeheartedly the leadership of our president. he takes a backseat to no one when it comes to military issues or foreign policy issues. he has taken very bold steps when faced with threats from other nations or from terrorists. a leading example, of course, is taking out osama bin laden the first moment he had an opportunity to do so. host: this is a tweet from one our viewers, who says much obama disenchantment is due to 2008 voters as attributing medical traits to the candidates. their fault, not his. let's go back to anthony in garland, independent caller. caller: all i am trying to find out is why -- my name is anthony. i'm a first-time caller. i have a comment and then a question. my first comment is why democrats
would want a president to do in this sort of situation. it's, frankly, what george w. bush did not do in hurricane katrina and we saw the result as well as the political price. so, i think it's fascinating, for people to watch, as chris christie, as pugnacious as he is, on the republican side, for republican ideas and values, to see where that ends for him. to see him say, essentially, but, yes, there is a big role for government in our society, and thank god we have it. >> indeed. richard, mr. romney has spent, as you know, each of the debates repeatedly suggesting, and in florida, i was just listening to him, and he was saying again, i'm the man for bipartisanship. i'm the person who can bring both sides of the aisle together. and what do we have in front of our very eyes, but the president embodying the very thing that this man can only talk about. >> right. and that's, of course, what challenges are left with. they're left with a promise and a speech and a microphone and a stage, where presidents can actually do stuff. the interest thing is that for four years, the republican part
president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
reinforce or under d undermine that narrative. in the case of george w. bush in 2006 with hurricane katrina, he campaigned as basically a compassionate conservative. but his actions during the whole katrina mess proved that he was otherwise. >> because you have that lasting image of president bush and when he said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to he
a violater is china? we're mad at them for protectionist policies, but george w. bush put limits on products, but we allow the currency to get weak? >> yeah, well, china's run the largest program of manufacturing subsidies in the world, and they are not compliant with the world trade organization obligations. it's been encouraging property piracy matters. the international trade commission in 2009 said china's ip violations cost businesses $48 billion, and if china enforced intellectual property laws, american businesses would have employed 923,000 more americans in the united states. china has been the subject of the wto complaints, and it's lost all of them. clearly, we have a big issue with them. dennis: okay. someone to combat them, and i have not heard much from either side. thank you for being with us donald chang and donald gross. >> thank you. >> debate this, labors, unions, collective bargaining, brett mcmahon of miller and long destruction, and bill dyne author of "state of the unions" here at noon eastern. cheryl: live at reagan airport in washington, d.c. where they are trying to
than george bush and bill clinton combined. that is how you ship jobs overseas, when you over regulate and overtaxed. the labor folks will get their jobs. but as they continue to put more regulation and more taxes on our american companies, they will ship more jobs overseas. we create an environment in washington and springfield. we know best in illinois what bad environment and that politicians do to our state. we see here. we see caterpillar with four or five plants not been built here. there is a reason, because of hothouse environment. >> we can get into the free trade agreements later on in this hour by going back to the organized labor groups, given both of your support, why should a factory worker earning wages just above the family poverty line vote for you? if you can talk to someone out there who might be watching or listening, what could you do for them? >> are we getting a full 75 seconds to answer this? >> i will give a full 75. >> this is about middle-class and working families. it is making sure that we support the policies that support working men and women. that means
. on the other hand, george bush 43 had his best moment, i always thought, at ground zero when he put his arm around that fireman that day and said, "i can hear you, and they're going to be hearing you in other parts of the world." that was enormous symbolism for the country, reassuring, in command. and at the same time, it said we're going to act here. and governor christie is a jersey guy, through and through. and what we're seeing in the last 24 hours with him, i think, is what i've seen with him over the last couple of years, wherever he's appeared. i didn't think he had the greatest keynote in the world, but the fact is that he is what he is. when he began to raise hell with the mayor of atlantic city for not following his orders, saying i don't give a damn about the election, i think people respond to that, democrat or republican. >> because it's real. president bush, you mentioned that moment as well as the first pitch soon after -- >> at the world series, incredible. >> incredibly symbolic and brave on a number of levels. he probably shouldn't have done it, but he did it. >> these kin
for republican george herbert walker bush. why? >> essentially what the democrats have been able to do is win the suburban voters as they pointed out a moment ago. come on to philadelphia with a huge edge. that's the largest principality in the state and has a heavy concentration of democrats. so if human philadelphia in the suburbs, steve, the four counties in the lehigh valley, let's say out of the southeast by 630,000 votes, it's pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the state, even if republicans win the infamous tea that we often refer to. the other point to remember about pennsylvania as it is dominated for the most part. 36 tv markets in the state, the philadelphia covers 40% of the voters of this state, all of delaware, which for a conversation is particularly important in the southern half of new jersey. so in order probably to be effective in the television advertising of campaigning, you've got to really advertise on the philadelphia television market, which goes up to the lehigh valley, by the way, way out into the western -- moving closer to the susquehanna riv
republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c
program passed by george w. bush. the candidate then worked across the aisles with republicans and with democrats to help t.a.r.p. be passed. basically in the fall before the election actually -- if you were concerned about how to become president, you would want to see the country fail. people would look toward a different party for leadership. not for one minute, did he think about playing politics with, you know such an important issue. >> stephanie: yep. >> which was solvency for the american banking system. >> stephanie: yep. reggie, i know -- they're telling us have a killer schedule. we so appreciate you taking time. please tell the president we got his back! >> we do. >> we'll do that, stephanie. i'll tell him you've got a great hook shot. he can come find you. >> stephanie: you don't understand how i was feared throughout the catholic league in upstate new york, reggie. i appreciate your respect. reggie love, thank you so much. talk to you soon. there he goes. [ applause ] >> wow, what a cool guy.
for the guy. >> or on george bush. >> that's out there on the internet. you can find that. >> wow. >> you know -- humor -- >> >> stephanie: when there are people dying. >> it requires truth. it requires something to be true that you are revealing within the humor -- if the whole thing is predicated on a lie -- >> stephanie: our buddy joan walsh wrote it is impossible to see the storm has devastated mitt romney's presidential candidacy. the response to the hurricane has seemed like one long commercial. a lesson we're all in this together while romney flails on the sidelines. along with his friends in right-wing world. it is just -- what? trying to make jokes when people are literally -- like -- all right. >> one big photo op for him. >> stephanie: 29 minutes after the hour. back with more elvira on "the stephanie miller show." to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr th
